Art Attack: December 2011's Coolest Covers

-Ragman has a costume that must be really fun for artists to spin their take on. I'd love to see it done different ways, and animated style is a great start.

-When Joe Madureira said he was having fun drawing Moloids, I had no idea how much!

-Patrick Gleason does a sick job making Batman images that are striking as well as terrifying.

-Ben Oliver is really catching my eye as of late. That's a fresh take on the classic "Batman's costume framing him" shot that's appropriate for Batwing.

-Francesco Francavilla can do no wrong. It's not just his art, but his composition that is dynamite.

-I like Stanley Lau's stuff a lot more when he tones down the painting and just draws.

-Clayton Crain's Carnage USA covers are nightmare-inducing. He and Pat Gleason need to battle.

-Francis Manapul's Flash cover is busy in the right way given who he's drawing.

-What the heck is Li'l Depressed Boy?

-Kaare Andrews is hitting a whole new stride with his Ultimate Comics work.

-How was I to know that Rafael Grampa drawing Uncanny X-Force was what was missing in my life?

-Venom as wallpaper? Nicely done, Tony Moore.

Great picks. Tony Moore and Patrick Gleason are consistently solid artists that amaze me.

I LOVE Clayton Crane on covers, but his interiors on X-Force were kinda too much at times.

When did Joe Mad come back? I thought he was done after Ultimates 3... I sure was. (zing?) In any event I am glad he's back, his art is cool.

That Uncanny X-Force cover is amazing.

Finally, idk what Lil' Depressed Boy is but I am pretty sure it annoys me.

Joe Mad is back drawing Avenging Spider-Man, which is basically a modern day Marvel Team-Up written by Zeb Weels. Gonna be rad.
